Our people

Our officers who provide the day to day custody and care of the adults, young people and children we are responsible for are the ones who really do the work, all other roles within the organisation exist to support them so that they have the support and infrastructure to succeed. Officers are fundamental to our organisation and without their hard work and professionalism GEOAmey could not provide the service we do to play our part in the Criminal Justice sector. The Senior Management team work closely with our officers to get feedback so that we can continuously improve our service and the improve the working lives of all GEOAmey’s people.
